I’ve been meaning to write this post for a week…ahh…those darn intentions! They so often don’t cooperate with my actual plans!
For the past week, I’ve been squealing with joy inside my heart! My dear friend Sarah Mae, just released her first published book this past week! And, it broke into the top 100 on Amazon! I’m so proud of my friend because of what she’s accomplished, but I’m probably even more proud of her because of what this book says and means.
Sarah Mae, along with her mentor, Sally Clarkson, are pulling back the veil on motherhood in all of its glories and challenges. Life with small kids is full of joys, but most days it’s also completely exhausting. And God didn’t mean for us to do it alone. He is our strength, but he also calls older women to speak life and truth into younger ones. We’re not alone in this journey called Motherhood, and my friend, Sarah Mae, beautifully shares her story.
“Desperate is for those who love their children to the depths of their souls but who have also curled up under their covers, fighting back tears, and begging God for help. It’s for those who have ever wondered what happened to all their ideals for what having children would be like. For those who have ever felt like all the “experts” have clearly never had a child like theirs. For those who have prayed for a mentor. For those who ever felt lost and alone in motherhood.
In Desperate you will find the story of one young mother’s honest account of the desperate feelings experienced in motherhood and one experienced mentor’s realistic and gentle exhortations that were forged in the trenches of raising her own four children.
It is our prayer that reading Desperate will leave you soul-filled, refreshed, and hopeful.”
So run out to your favorite local bookstore and buy “Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe” or click on the book above to pop over to Amazon and snatch a copy. Trust me…you’ll be glad you did.
